When a wine is placed in casks for ageing, the part of the volume that evaporates is called "LA PART DES ANGES" (the angels' share). The PART DES ANGES is a rather unusual wine for a Châteauneuf du Pape
because it is the Mourvedre
that dominates 70% of the blend completed by 20% Grenache
and 10% Syrah
/ Shiraz. This does not detract from the beauty of the bottle; on the contrary, its atypical and temperamental side gives it a charming advantage... Be careful though to provide a decanter if you open it in the next two years.
